making a switch from verizon to sprint

has anyone on here switched from verizon to sprint???? I'm just curious if you werre happy with the service.....Thank you in advance, I am in Maryland and would love a cheaper bill, but I am really afraid to port over my business line because I need good reception. So instead I got a different phone number to use for the 30 day trail period....

Thanks for any info you can provide..I got the HTC Shift and love the phone but afraid of revception in some areas, compared to verizon

middlemen

Since Sprint in turn wholesales WiMAX *from* Clearwire... so now why would anyone interested not wholesale direct from Clearwire?

I guess Sprint can throw in 3G also but... this can't be that lucrative for Sprint, unless the prices are so high that make it unattractive to begin with.

Voicemail notification icon issue

The EVO 4G also got the Gingerbread update today as well. Anyone else experiencing the voicemail notification icon that appeared after the update was installed, and now won't go away? I've tried rebooting, turning phone off, removing battery, task killing, and yes....called my voicemail several times to make sure I really didn't have a new voicemail. There doesn't seem to be a way to clear the notification. WTF? Eh?

To Root or Not to root

Exactly as stated... I don't know a whole lot about it but is it really worth rooting your phone?

Screen Dimensions on 3D

Is it just me, or does the screen look narrower and taller on the 3d than the EVO?

re: Phone crashes on Call Waiting

Sad
Love this phone but have discovered a serious problem: If I'm on a call and get a call-wait and do not answer the call-wait, the phone crashes and I lose both calls (the active one and the call-wait). Very disturbing.

Open Programs

So I bought this phone for my wife the other day. I have the Samsung Epic 4G. I am used to having the program monitor where I can turn off apps that are draining the battery. Well I downloaded an app killer program for her Shift since it doesn't come with one, maybe I'm using the wrong one. It's called advanced task killer. Anyway, my issue is, after she makes a call or even when she uses an app, she goes into the task killer to kill the apps in use. Well there tend to be a lot that she hasn't even used that are running like Gmail and amazon mp3 for example. Does anyone know why these apps are running when she isn't using them and how to possibly turn them off? Thanks!

The Keyboard...

That's two phonescoop "reviews" I've read saying that the keyboard was not very good. One from Eric and one from Rich... what gives? The keyboard won't win any awards, but I love it. I think the keys are well placed and easily used. And I also like the fact that you have to move the keyboard without the spring action. I've seen several spring loaded keyboards fail miserably. This one feels like it will last for years. Oh and as far as the video calling...
I'm pretty sure it was abandoned on purpose for 2 reasons. 1. Qik being bought by Skype. 2. Everyone bitches about Vid calling on anything but WIFi. The fact is, like you touched upon in one of your articles, Vid calls aren't perfect even on a pc, so I'm not really demanding my cell phone ...

Voice dialing

I currently have a Hero, and voice dialing is useless. How is it on the Shift??

What research?

The processor is the newest version of the Snapdragon processor (the same one in the g2) and is much faster than the Evo's, not to mention a better graphics processor. This phone is essentially the g2 without the trackpad, and Sense on top. Please do your research!

Rich, we disagree...

Rich Brome said:
The keyboard isn't great. The disappointment starts when you slide it open; there's no spring assist to snap it open and closed. The keys themselves are separate and raised from the surface, but their flat shape makes them surprisingly difficult to tell apart by feel.


I happen to like the sliding mechanism. It reminds me of the Motorola DROID because of the fact that it doesn't 'snap' open. I prefer that style of keyboard. Once opened, I find the keys to be great. The feedback I get from pressing them is great and I wouldn't have it any other way. This may indeed be one of my favorite keyboards. It sure does beat the heck out of the Samsung Epic.

Which style of keyboard is your favorite...

fairness

after having it to mess around with, I've determined that in a world without the Evo, this is sprints meow. Yes-over the epic. Gave to play with it because specs don't lie, but they don't do it justice. Great phone
